Most vehicles start out with a “new car smell,” but there are other specific odors that motorists should never ignore.

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Great trustworthy crew!

Have been so impressed with these guys since we moved to Centerville. They seem to honestly listen to customer concerns, diagnose the problem, and make the repair quickly. Great service goes a long way in the automotive repair business. They also take appointments for oil changes!

These guys are great ! My car took longer than anticipated (they're busy) so the owner brings it to our home. I'm very impressed. Thanks Ben

Centerville Service Center cares about people and community. I appreciate and trust any mechanics that lend their time and skills to support flood victims. Thanks for being a class act fellas!

CSC has serviced our vehicles since 2010. Excellent customer service and automotive work at a reasonable price. This is the first place you should stop if you need an auto mechanic.
Trevor Mueller, 08/21/2017
Amazing service will definitely recommend the shop to my friends and family!!!

Great service and a friendly staff! They even offered to give me a ride to work after dropping my car off for an oil change.
Aaron Stacy, 11/13/2017
Great service! Knowledgeable and skilled mechanics! I only take my vehicles to Ben!
Tim Chopp, 11/13/2017
There is a reason they have 100% 5-star reviews. These guys are the best. Their prices are probably average, but the level of service and integrity is off the charts. They'll take the time to talk you through the issues without rushing through it. Highly recommend.

This place is on North Main Street in Centerville, not Dayton. Anyway - these guys are honest as the day is long (or short, this time of year!) and do great work. They're not the cheapest place in town, but they do only the work that's necessary and they do it right.
I've taken my cars to CSC for about five years now. They have consistently been honest, reliable and speedy all while maintaining a great level of quality.
Great service. Really appreciate you staying late to install new battery. Thanks again.
I have used your facilities for over 30 years and do so because of the confidence that I have in your business. Your folks are well trained and they give good advice. I appreciate honesty and good service and reasonable prices. Thank you
I always appreciate you working with me to get the best service and parts at the lowest price possible. Chad and Ben do a great job.
I really appreciated the recommendations for maintenance and service on a used Camry that we are looking to purchase. Your evaulation was very thorough and helpful.
It is important to me to have mechanics who care about my car, are trustworthy, and competent. This place has been excellent in my experience.
They were ready for my appointment, took my car, completed the job, in record time. Very pleased with the quality of work.
This location is friendly, honest, and trustworthy. The prices seem a bit higher than others, but you most likely won't find someone who will keep you from spending unnecessary dollars.
I was very happy with the work done on our Jetta. They installed my own disc pads and did a great job. They just forgot to complete a tire rotation, but there was no charge at the time. I will definitely consider this location for future work on this car and others in our family
Very satisfied, excellent service from people I have put my trust in through the years.
Needed a quick fix on my automobile. They checked it out, did the repair and I was out the door in about an hour. Great Servic Center.
100% satisfied with the folks working at Centerville Service Center. Very skilled and professional mechanics. A bonus for any customer is that they are friendly as well. These guys will always go out of their way to be sure you are pleased with the work performed on your vehicle. The price is always fare and very competitive. A clean place to await vehicle's repair with coffee and very often free doughnuts.
I don't have any problems with the time, price or quality of the work. They did what they promise to do. Can't expect any more. Thanks
Centerville Service Center is where I bring all my vehicles. They are very efficient at locating the problem/issue and their prices are extremely fair. They even offer military discounts unlike several other places. I recommend to anyone that needs work done on their vehicle to bring it into them.
I brought my car in and had it checked for the check engine light coming on and some other noises it was making. They provided a quick diagnoses and the most money saving way of moving forward. I always appriciate their honesty and not just trying to offer the fix that will get them the most money out of me.
Car taken in as scheduled and problem isolated quickly. Took a day to get the part and so a loaner vehicle was provided. Finished up next day and seems as though the problem was solved. Good service and followup. The servicing of my car was quick and complete and it was in and out in less than one day, as I had hoped. We have been coming here for years with our cars and will continue to do so when the service is so good.
I wouldn't trust anyone else with general maintenance & repairs on my vehicle. Highly recommended
The service was good. It would have been good for the bill to reflect that the technician inspected the brakes while he was replacing the rotors and that they were O.K. I asked that that be added before my bill was printed and the clerk did that.
As long as I live in the area, Centerville Service Center has a customer in me! I will recommend this place to anyone. They were fast, friendly and honest. They even fixed a nail in my mom's tire on the spot when she was dropping me off to pick up my car. Also, many times I have gone to auto shops where I felt I was talked down to and charged unfairly, simply because I was a female. These guys are gentlemen. The problems were explained to me thoroughly and I walked away with a plan of action to deal with other, not as urgent issues. Cannot thank Ben and the whole team, enough. You guys rock!
